the court's decision on marriage? a constitutional law expert at nyu. he's here with me this afternoon. good to see you, professor. >> good to see you, craig. >> proposition 8 has been battered around in california courts. what's behind the timing of the supreme court being asked to hear this case now? >> well, it's just gone up the system in the regular stately way that these cases go so that the trial in this case is actual held in early 2010. there was a 9th circuit opinion and now there's an appeal to the supreme court and so we'll hear the the ultimate decision and oral arguments will be heard in the 26th and we'll hear the ultimate decision in the court in june. how unusual is it for an administration to be involved in a supreme court case like this? >> not that unusual. the brief itself talks about prior cases in which it's gotten involved in precisely this way. >> when that happens, does it lend any more credence to the argument? >> i think it definitely does. i think the government will now be allowed oral argument time in the court so we'll be able to address the justices about whe
on it on a federal level like this but it comes down to rubber meets the road and enforce laws. as one of the folks in my town said very clearly, there are a lot of laws out there and there are a lot that being enforced properly. it's sort of seems to me a no-brainer you start by enforcing the laws and fund them and make sure that we have the infrastructure, whether it's on enforcing trafficking or, in fact, background checks. it doesn't really do us any good to have a background check bill and probably get, i hope to get a bipartisan piece of legislation on the next -- in the next week as well but it doesn't do any good to put out the laws and a lot of legislators look like they're being really busy and reacting if we don't give them any teeth. >> no. absolutely agree with that, rob. we also need a permanent director of the atf. that would help. the gun trafficking legislation, it's really important because the data is clear that guns tend to move from states that have weaker laws in to state that is have stronger laws, thus, weakening the effect of the states, with those stronger laws. but if we
the laws can remain, but cannot obtain the cherished fruits of citizenship. here is jeb bush, on the first stop on his book tour yesterday, on the "today" show. >> when it comes to a path to citizenship, all right, you fall short of that. you want legal residency, but -- and you want people to admit they've committed a crime by coming here illegally to pay back taxes and pay some fines, but not offer them a path to citizenship. if they do all the things you've asked of them, why not grant that right to become an american? >> because this proposal is a proposal that looks forward. and if we want to create an immigration policy that's going to work, we can't continue to make illegal immigration an easier path than legal immigration. >> that was a pretty big flip-flop from what jeb bush had to say just nine months ago. >> either a path to citizenship, which i would support, and that does put me, probably out of the mainstream of most conservatives, or a path to legalization. a path to residency, of some kind. >> jeb bush quickly got tangled up by the media in yesterday's flip-flop, and began
in the land. first nominated to the d.c. your yut court in 2011, and graduate of princeton and georgetown law has been waiting for an up or down vote for 720 days. every republican senator, except for one, lisa murkowski voted to block her nomination. president obama made his displeasure known. quote, "i am deeply disappointed that despite support from a majority of the u.s. senate, minority of senators continues to block the nomination of katilyn halligan. today's vote continues. the white house also released statistics showing the difference in average wait times between president obama's district court nominees and those of his predecessor. the obstruction pushed democrats, including dick durbin to rethink the decision to not overhaul the filibuster process at the start of this term zoosh i feel sorry for her. i hate to suggest this, but if this is an indication of where we're headed, we need to revisit the reforms. i'm sorry to say it because i was hopeful that a bipart sflan approach to dealing with these issues would work. >> um, richard, who is going to get their paperwork handled firs
on this program we showed you this chart from the southern poverty law center. the number of extreme militia groups in america is at an all-time high. record high. now, today everyone is lathered up and talking about how senator rand paul is so fantastic in his filibuster to delay the confirmation of cia chief john brennan. but let's not forget what rand paul actually said when he took to the senate floor to talk about the obama administration's drone program and policy of targeted killings. this is what has me fired up tonight. >> that americans could be killed in a cafe in san francisco or in a restaurant in houston or at their home in bowling green, kentucky is an abomination. it is something that should not and cannot be tolerated in our country. >> tolerated? anybody talking about doing that? rand paul goes to the well of the senate and fuels the very nut jobs we heard about from the southern poverty law center. the senator from kentucky, you know what he is doing? he is inflaming the extremists by saying that the government might execute drone strikes on any american who might take a s
next, hand it to arkansas. now has the most restrictive abortion law in the country on the books at least. republicans, of course, passed a law setting a limit down there at 12 weeks, when a fetal heartbeat can be heard. well, this is because some on the right feel the country isn't moving fast enough to ban abortions. maybe that's because most people are pro-choice. >>> president obama followed up his dinner with a lunch today with the very important guy, paul ryan, who is chair of the budget committee. is it possible the republicans have decided that opposing the president at all costs is no longer worth the price? >>> let me finish with how republicans and democrats can actually compromise. it's doable. this is "hardball," the place for politics. she knows you like no one else. and you wouldn't have it any other way. but your erectile dysfunction - you know, that could be a question of blood flow. cialis tadalafil for daily use helps you be ready anytime the moment's right. you can be more confident in your ability to be ready. and the same cialis is the only daily ed tablet a
